Testimonial – weight reduction

Last year, I lost 40 lbs working with Carolyn Arnold and I’ve kept it off.

Since I was 4 years old, I’ve been an emotional eater. I used to eat when I was sad or anxious to comfort myself. I used to eat when I was happy to celebrate. Pretty much if I was feeling an emotion, there was a food to go with it.

The worst part was my nightly anxiety snack. Every night around 8 p.m., I’d have to have a bowl of ice cream or a bag of microwave popcorn.  It was the thing to quell my anxiousness and help me sleep.

I am an intelligent woman. I know that the extra 200 calories a night was what kept my weight on. And yet I couldn’t stop. It was like I was four years old again.  I was frustrated.

I had a few sessions with Carolyn. In one of the sessions, she regressed me to a young age. We encountered the memory, the moment that started this whole problem.  While under hypnosis, she helped me let go of that feeling of vulnerability.

That night I didn’t need a snack. I didn’t even think about a snack! I didn’t miss it. It was just suddenly bedtime.  The next night was the same thing. No snack required.

It’s been 15 months since we worked together, and in that entire time, I haven’t done any emotional eating. I enjoy my food, but it isn’t required to comfort me. I don’t find myself standing in front of the cupboard wanting to eat something to make the anxiety go away.

I didn’t expect that I would be able to be hypnotized, and I certainly didn’t think that the key was one locked away in my memory.  Carolyn’s hypnosis broke the link between comfort and eating. I highly recommend her.
